The Best Of The Internet On #PolarVortex Day

by Gracie McKenzie

On Tuesday, it was so friggin' cold outside that our activities were pretty limited. But this is 'Murica, so we did post a ton of social media — and amongst the feeds filled with weather forecast screenshots and cold-gear selfies, some posts really made their mark.

One Wisconsin meteorologist started early, sparking a trend on Monday when he posted a video of boiling water turning to snow in the air.

Thousands of people tried it for themselves. Even Vanessa Hudgens got in the act!

A lot of people disagreed about what a "Polar Vortex" sounded like.

And some just couldn't decide.

But eventually, we were like...

Twitter user @pmarshwx had posted it to start a #polarvortexmemecompetition, which continued over the course of the day.

But nothing beats this Instagram, reposted by @danny_v_ from @lapinbrun:

If only he'd had a coat like this dog did today.
